While outsourcing medical transcription is not a new concept, it might be new to you. And when done correctly, it’s a pain-free process that gives you the freedom to focus on more important things, like patient care. Please take a few minutes to read the Top 5 Reasons why it can help you to outsource medical transcription now — and in the long run.

1. ELIMINATE CAPITAL INVESTMENT
When you outsource your entire medical transcription process, you no longer have to own a dictation system or invest in a typing platform or worry about upgrading to the very latest equipment. Potential savings of 17% in equipment annual support costs.
2. REDUCE DIRECT LABOR COSTS
By managing an in-house team of transcriptionists, you are most likely carrying direct labor costs that are putting a strain on your already tight budget. Hiring such staff as Full-Time Employees (FTEs) means not only having to pay their salaries, but also having to provide them with benefits. By outsourcing all or part of your medical transcription process, you can gain greater control, streamline your staff, and greatly reduce or eliminate these expenses.
3. INCREASED DICTATION VOLUME OR STAFF SHORTAGE
Are you able to stringently measure performance and impose penalties if quality levels are not met? You can if you outsource your medical transcription process.  With outsourcing, whether 100% or just the overflow, you can cost-effectively manage sharp increases in report volume or a shortage in staffing without having it impact your turnaround time, workflow, quality, or compliance.
4. IMPROVE REPORT ACCURACY AND TURNAROUND TIME
Outsourcing medical transcription services regularly document their accuracy and turnaround time rate, making sure they have metrics that prove they’re meeting Quality Assurance levels. When you manage your own medical transcription process, you are ultimately responsible for the accuracy and turnaround time.
5. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A SINGLE-SOURCE TRANSCRIPTION SOLUTION
When you have to piece together your own medical transcription process, the entire weight of the solution is on your shoulders and having to work directly with IT, accounts receivable, and HR. Dealing with the day-to-day problems, cost surprises, and emergencies that constantly crop up. By outsourcing your medical transcription process to a single source, you free yourself of the burden, save substantial money by consolidating all your services with one provider, and still maintain complete control of the process — while ensuring that all necessary medical documentation is being completed in a timely and efficient manner for your practice.
